Milk alternatives might not be all they're marketed as. Over the past few years non-dairy milk has really taken off. I remember as a kid when we figured out that me and dairy didn't mix super well the option that was available out there was rice milk and eventually soy came on the scene. Now when we are trying to figure out what non-diary alternative might be best for us we are presented with more choices than I could have imagined as an 8 year old.
Mindfulness isn't just for Yoga
It's that time of year when everything starts feeling a little up in the air. Kids are going back to school (maybe), winter is upon us, things are getting darker earlier and there is a shift away from the summer vibes, even if maybe this year those vibes were muted slightly.
With all this change now is a great time to get mindful and focus back in and support ourselves where we can.
Planning, budgeting, not blowing your whole month's budget in one grocery shop, how the heck do you even do that!?
A little disclaimer, although these tips and tricks will help scale back on your grocery bill, it is likely that you will feel like this is additional work for you, at least for the first little bit.
Some of these tips fall into the category of new habits, and well, new habits take time to feel seamless, so be patient with yourself and give yourself a moment to test these things out.
That said the beauty of these tips is you don't need to implement them all at once, pick one tip from the list at a time, work on it until you feel comfortable and confident with it and then move on to the next step.
Not always the most exciting thing to do, but food journaling can be a HUGE help for individuals trying to stay healthy, lose weight, gain muscle, train for an athletic event...etc. Tracking your meals is straight up boring I get it. I get a lot of eye rolls and "do I have to" from clients when I ask them to track their food but there is definitely some reasons to my madness.
*disclaimer: food tracking isn't for everyone. If you have recovered from an eating disorder or fall into controlling patterns with food, tracking may not be for you.
In the workout world not many things are talked about quiet as much as protein. When should you take it? How much do you need for optimal muscle recovery? Is there such a thing as too much? Do we need to get it from animal products? Are all proteins made the same? With so many questions and opinions surround something as seemingly simple as protein no wonder we are talking about it so much.
